Birds, Bears and Belugas Feature #1:
We see polar bears in the summer! As part of the vast coastal “polar bear waiting room”, they provide fantastic viewing opportunities for us while they wile away the summer waiting for fall, sea ice and the return to their hunting grounds. The bears, like people, are interested in the belugas as well (though for slightly different reasons) and we’ve witnessed them attempting to hunt the whales from coastal rocks. The scent of the Arctic meals that you enjoy while you visit us might be part of the reason they visit so consistently (but don’t feed the bears!). Whatever the reason, you will be thrilled by this unique adventure.
Birds, Bears and Belugas Feature #2:
Thousands of beluga whales congregate in the Hudson Bay each summer, you will see one, you will see a dozen, you will see and hear hundreds of beluga whales both from the air on the flight to and from the Lodge and also on our boat tours in the Seal River Estuary.
Birds, Bears and Belugas Feature #3:
You can actually swim with the belugas! We have dry suits for your use and we’ll suit you up with a full snorkel set so that you can see them up close and personal. Belugas are among the friendliest of whales and are just as curious about people as people are about them.
Birds, Bears and Belugas Feature #4:
This is a soft adventure highly conducive to family participation and at a convenient time as children are out of school for the summer. This means that you and your family are able to experience polar bears, land’s largest carnivore, in their natural habitat TOGETHER.
